Blog hopping and creating

Hello dear bloggers,

First of all: a very warm welcome to all my new followers!! You're with so many... unbelievable! All thanks to the "Grow Your Blog" event. Thank you for joining me! And also thanks for all the sweet comments!

It wasn't all about blog hopping for me these days - besides spending time with my son of course. I've been creating stuff as well.

First I'd like to show you two photos. Both taken and edited by me.

The first one I took in Bordeaux, France, in 2011 when visiting with my aunt. It's a small part of a huge monument. Both of the pictures I edited in Photoshop Elements with layering. Since I wasn't already spending enough time behind my computer :)

The second one is a little angel statue I bought today at a budget store. It's actually all off-white.

I really felt like creating after all the beauty I'd seen while blog hopping.

Another project I'm busy with is something for City Crafters Challenge Blog. Because...

... My collage The Revelation won the week 141 challenge at CCCB!!!

And the prize I won is a spot as their guest designer for the week 145 challenge. Can you believe it??? So I'll show you the result of what I'm making for them somewhere around February 5th. I'm so happy!! Thank you CCCB!

What else am I creating... ATC's! More on that later.

If this is your first visit here - coming over from "Grow Your Blog" - then my previous post might be of interest too (it's my special GYB post). You'll find a little giveaway there. I'll be drawing a lucky winner at February 1st.

But for now: off to bed! Happy crafting to you!
